souch ka Asan, souch ka seat, souch kI gaddi


Explanation:
any one of the above words can be taken but it is not necessary that every word should be translated into pure targer language. Popular words can be taken or adopted into target language. Here for 'seat' we can use seat in devanagari script.

YahA(n) 80 say adhik shauchAlya khand (or block itself) hai(n), jinme(n) lagbhag 660 seete(n) hai(n)
